Speech Center

Fall Semester 2018

Speech Center Location and Mission

The Speech Center in BA 511 is located in the McFarland Library on the fifth floor and near the Writing Center.  Our Speech Center consultants provide free tutoring for all students for any course that requires public speaking or group presentations.  The student does not need to be enrolled in a public speaking course.  Tutors can help students with outlining and research strategies, computer slide presentations, brainstorming of topics, and delivery techniques.

The Speech Center is equipped with a camera and recording equipment along with all “smart facilities” needed.  All students will be able to practice their speeches or group presentations, using any visual aids they may have, record the practice speeches and presentations to then playback for critiquing of what they do well and what aspects of the presentation they need to improve or strengthen.
